Former UFC welterweight champion BJ Penn might not grace the Octagon at Dec. 29’s UFC 79 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The popular Hawaiian lightweight, who once tangled with current UFC light heavyweight fighter Lyoto Machida at heavyweight in Japan’s K-1 HERO’S, might be moved to fight a month later during UFC’s Super Bowl weekend festivities.

On Oct. 31, Sherk appeals a yearlong suspension handed down by the California State Athletic Commission for steroid use following his successful July 7 title defense over Hermes Franca (18-6) at UFC 73 in Sacramento, Calif.

I would hope they're not at ufc 79, I've just bought tickets for 80, on the basis that it would be Penn v Joe Daddy, as advertised by the UFC!?!?!?

EDIT - Now I see, it was an old thread that has been bumped
